Beef Burgers

For the BBQ theme, the South Arm Seniors’ Kitchen had some Beef Burgers for lunch.


We made small patties of Beef Burgers for portion control purpose and served them on slider thins from President’s Choice.

  • 12 plain crackers
  • 8 sprigs fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped, including the stalks
  • 2 heaped teaspoons Dijon mustard

      Hi Lisa, we usually double the recipe to cater for the number of participants in the kitchen. For one recipe, it should be one egg.
